Scuba Steve with some nice fish from this morning.

The lake level is 552.31 and dropping with several hours of generation in the afternoon and evening. The surface temperature is 85 degrees as of this morning and has been steady for several weeks. It did not get into low 90's as it usually does in August. August is usually the most difficult month to spearfish because of algae bloom and low visibility but that is not true this year. The visibility is good and is getting better like it usually does in September. Norfork Lake has avoided storms, big rains and fluctuations in water level this year. We are getting a little dry now but have received timely rain all spring and summer. This is the first summer that I have not had to irrigate for 20-years and we have not had a 100 degree day yet with none in sight. Some people are reporting that the fish are just now in their summer pattern what ever that is. I think it means that the fish go very deep and move south. I do not report what usually happens but what is happening no matter why. That is speculation from the sofa. The walleye left the brush piles in 30-feet of water about 2-weeks ago and went deeper but not too deep. Some years they go as deep as 90-feet and hug the bottom and do not move. They are back now and schooled in 35-40 feet of water on main lake points with brush. Scuba Steve has brush at all depths do to differences in season and water level. The white bass have been schooled for several weeks and was my mainstay when the walleye left. Now the walleye are with the white bass and you can have a good time with both. I am getting no catfish and just a few crappie that stayed on the brush all year. I love to spearfish crappie in the fall when they return. I expect them any day and will keep checking my crappie places. This is an excellent time to dive Norfork Lake and Scuba Steve will direct you to good places when you get here. It is the best in years now.
